I have trouble walking for any significant distance. He put a stent in my right leg which has made a remarkable difference. He will be doing my left leg soon. So that should completely fix my distance walking issues. Thanks to you and your team of professionals.

I went to Dr. Tapper because I was referred to him for a DVT blood clot and intermuscular hemangioma. It was a total waste of time and money. He was so dismissive and started trying to sell me on fixing my spider veins. He didn't even share my MRI results with me.. Horrible bedside manner. Would not recommend this doctor for any serious issues.

Dr. Tapper performed carotid surgery on me. The procedures was explained in detail before the surgery and then he explained it to my family following surgery. I did not experience as much pain or discomfort as I had expected. He and his staff are professional and efficient. I highly recommend this office.

He is terrific, I hadn't walked more than 75 yards without pain in my legs for 18 months. He fixed that for me and I am now able to walk any distance I like. Please go see him, he will fix you as well. Can't say enough good things about him (and his staff). He has a wonderful gift and he is my Hero.

My Dad is a young 91 year who is independent and drives up to see us in South Bend, Indiana. He had seen Dr Tapper for a swollen right calf and wound that was slow to heal. My Dad had been informed that he had a clot in his femoral vein and needed a surgical procedure. I flew down and took him. I was informed they would do a procedure to break up the block, use a ballon or a stent. Upon my return, I was told there wasn’t a block. He thought there was a block and he was wrong! They informed me th

Only see this Dr if you are superficial and do not need real help with a medical condition that may threaten your health. Also, make sure you have plenty of money. He will make appointments to just talk about what he may or may not do and nickel and dime you. If you bring a friend or family member he will try and sell them on something too. Be warned. The office people are snooty and come off like they couldn't care less about you. They need training in people skills as well as the Dr.

I made an appt for 2nd opinion , my 95 yrold mother was told her leg needed to be amputated. On the day of the appt I called & was told it was cancelled,no authorization, then 5min laterwas told they did get it, but her appt was cancelled, I went through many hours of trying to get another opinion, only to end up with a bill for a transportation bus I now didn't need. But also critical time wasted and no opinion. Their incompetence cost my mother the need for another opinion, I could of got.c

Came to Dr. Tapper's office for varicose vein treatment. Wait time is usually less than 10 minutes. He explains information well and is kind and courteous. The results were even better than expected. The procedure was painless. I didnt even experience any pain that they said I might have. No complications!!

I've been reading articles by a Dr in PBG who stressed not to ignore leg pain & swelling. I called to make an appt with Dr Tapper. I was asked why & tried to explain leg pain,was cut off & asked if veins were protruding or spider veins. I said I have some spider veins but before I could finish I was cut off again, told no need to see Dr, my ins didn't cover it, it was $300 for 30 min. I again tried to explain the pain & wish to see Doc. NOPE! Non-M.D. phone diagnosis? To PBG Doc I go!
